Microwave Therapyfor Warts & Verrucae
Introducing Swift® Microwave Therapy for Warts and Verrucae
Would you like Quick, Easy AND Effective Verruca Treatment?
Look no further than our new Swift® microwave therapy. Developed in the UK, we are one of only a handful of clinics in the country to offer this incredible next generation verruca treatment.
What is Swift?
Swift is a brand new concept that uses microwave energy to treat verruca’s in a very controlled and precise way. It is the most effective treatment for verrucae on the market*. Treatment takes up to 5 seconds per verruca and there are no anaesthetic or dressings required, which means you can continue your everyday activities imnmediately.
How does it work?
Microwave energy is delivered directly to the site of the verruca using a hand-held probe. It sends microwaves to a precise and predetermined depth leaving surrounding tissue undamaged. It targets water molecules within the skin creating heat which destroys the infected cells.

Are microwaves safe?
Microwaves have been used in clinics for over 30 years, particularly in the fields of cancer and tumour treatment. Microwaves are a form of non-ionising radiation, which means they cannot cause damage to the DNA of living things. Aside from kitchen appliances, microwaves are used in a number of every day devices including wifi, mobile phones and bluetooth.
Does it hurt?
Treatment with Swift is extremely quick and requires no dressings, causing minimal disruption to your day. This also means that you don’t need to keep your foot dry in the bath or shower. The procedure last just seconds. Some people experience some discomfort during this time, likened to a bee sting. It lasts for such a short time, most people have no awareness of the treatment after about 2 or 3 minutes.
How does it compare with other treatments
|Treatment||Number of appointments||Dressings required||Success Rate|

At Eclipse Foot Clinic, we offer a package of three treatments spaced at 1-2 week intervals. This has been shown to give the best results. Occasionally further treatments may be required, particularly with long standing verruca’s. These can be purchased separately if needed.
